Up for sale is a 95 Chevy 3500 HD flatbed tow truck with the 454 motor. It has a Holmes aluminum bed with the tow bar in the rear for towing an extra vehicle behind the truck. The bed measures from front to back at 19ft. All the lighting on the bed was recently redone and has all new lights and light covers as you can see in the pictures. In this auction will also be included an orange and white Whelen light bar for overhead rotating and strobe lighting. its not pictured on the truck.
It has a strong 454 motor that was rebuilt about a year ago. The transmission on it went out two months ago and it was replaced and the transmission guy added stronger parts and said that this transmission upgrade would make this thing bulletproof and it was ideal for all the power the truck has to exert while towing. It cost me quite a bit more than a regular tranny and it really does tow tons better now. I just put a brand new fuel pump in and the filters were replaced as well. O2 sensors and exhaust were recently replaced as well.
The bed is fully operational and so is the lift. It runs smooth and I have never had a problem with it. I have not had the time to add a master control for all the lights after I started the upgrade on them all. It will need one or you can rig up switches as you please. I also tore out the old throttle lock cable and have not put in a new one yet. Its only 30 for the cable and literally takes 30 minutes to install. It does not affect the functionality of the bed but the high idol allows the bed to move faster as it increases the engines RPM's and pushes the PTO to move faster. The belt on the PTO was just changed. It is coming time to take some preventative maintenance steps and have the PTO serviced and maybe have it rebuilt. I have done this with all my trucks diligently every two years to keep them in top form.This one is about due.
The interior is in good shape with normal wear and tear. My trucks have always been well maintained and serviced. The body of the truck is also in good shape as you can see and the paint job is new as well. It does have AC and it does work but if you know Chevys then you know that between the years of 95 to 01 the switches for the vents that Chevy used on their trucks always had problems. you turn the switch and sometimes you will get air cold enough to blast you out of the truck, other times not so much. That would be the one complaint I have that I never got around to fixing.
It's a good truck and I hate to see it go but I have to make room for new ones. Good luck. You must have feedback to be able to participate in this bid and if you don't plan on buying, then don't place a bid. I have had to re-list too many items previously because people don't want to pay. I reserve the right to end auction early as it is for sale locally as well.

Today was a pretty big day for General Motors, debuting the all-new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickup trucks ahead of their official showcase at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And now that the dust has settled at GM's big reveal event, we've had a chance to snap dozens of photos of the new pickup pair from every angle.

We already told you the important bits earlier today (click here in case you missed it), but let's recap. Under the hood are three new engines - a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 (you know, a version of the small-block that'll also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette), all mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. The 2014 model year marks the return of the Z71 off-road package with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and beefier underbody protection. Inside, there's a host of new technology and a greater focus on better quality and refinement.
Some of the nitty-gritty specifics (like engine output numbers and fuel economy) have yet to be revealed, and since we haven't driven the finished products yet, it's hard to say how these trucks will fare against rivals like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. For now, we can only judge these two books by their covers, and while we do like the designs of the new trucks, we Autoblog staffers are torn on exactly which one looks best.
When are stripes more than just stripes? Follow up question: Is the product development team at Chevrolet really cocky enough to hide the next C7 Corvette variant in plain sight? This very recently spotted, and ostensibly obscured C7 asks a lot more questions than it answers, but there's at least some evidence to support that it might be the next Corvette Grand Sport.

The first and most obvious tip-off that something is up with this 'Vette revolves around those silver stripes. Obviously the stripes themselves don't necessarily denote a new model. However, when Chevy recently launched its "colorizer" website for the Stingray, there was no provision made for racing stripes - solid colors only.
Grand Sport exhibit number two is actually an incriminating lack of badges. The production Corvettes we've seen to date have all carried Stingray badges on their fenders, just behind the vent. The car seen in these images has no such badges, which is an intriguing omission on an car that looks like a production-spec vehicle otherwise.
